Lewis Smith & Co. would like to welcome Insurance Protector Group (IPG) as the first business to set-up shop in the DY5 Business and Innovation Enterprise Zone.
The Enterprise Zone is being developed by a partnership of Dudley Council, Black Country LEP and West Midlands Combined Authority. Its mission is to rejuvenate the existing Waterfront business complex and to further the develop the site and the surrounding area. The expectation is that the zone will support the creation of 300 new businesses, enable 7,000 new jobs and inject £600m into the local economy.
Whilst we are seeing some buoyancy in the business environment around Dudley, Stourbridge and Halesowen, we are delighted to see the the DY5 project celebrating its initial success. Having the Waterfront back as a thriving local commercial hub will have a knock on effect to plenty of other businesses in the area.
Lewis Smith & Co. is, of course, ready to provide expertise in accountancy and taxation to businesses that are relocating to the Enterprise Zone or starting-up to take advantage of its benefits.
